Findlay Creek neighbourhood became my home approximately 2.5 years ago. The more I live here the more I appreciate this neighbourhood. I do not own a house yet but after discovering this beautiful community for myself I am really considering Findlay Creek as a location for purchasing my first home.

Findlay Creek in the beginning
The first homes in the neighbourhood were built in the early 2000s. Since then Findlay Creek has welcomed approximately 1,400 families who now call this neighbourhood their home. The community keeps on growing and welcoming new families every day.
A Quick & Easy Commute
Findlay Creek is located just outside the greenbelt off one of Ottawa’s main roads – Bank Street (Hwy 31) – in the south end of the capital. It is relatively close to the commercial and transit points both on Bank Street and Hunt Club Road.
“Close to everything but away from it all” (http://www.findlaycreek.com/index.html) – has become a slogan for the Findlay Creek community. I couldn’t agree more! It is convenient for people commuting by car or via public transport. The local bus route takes you to the South Keys area from which you have a good connection to anywhere in the city by bus or the O-train.
Findlay Creek Homes
As of 2011 (refer to Findlay Creek website), Findlay Creek consists of approximately 1,400 residences (town-homes, semi-detached homes, single homes and Java condos). Unfortunately the development of condos is finished at this time (which was a great option for young people starting out and on a budget). Currently in Findlay Creek you can look into purchasing a variety of housing from manor town homes, bungalow town homes, semi-detached houses, to bungalows and single homes.
This neighbourhood is ideal for new families who are just starting out, or those looking for a quiet & peaceful area within short driving distance of the city center.

Findlay Creek is known for its parks, children’s playgrounds, pathways, sidewalks, plenty of trees and greenery throughout the neighbourhood. The wide and uncluttered street designs are a welcome bonus as well.
Dragonfly Park in Findlay Creek
Dragonfly Park offers a beautiful playground, which consists of a wide variety of play structures and a swing set. The basketball court, park benches and beautiful landscaping are also worth mentioning.
All homes in the neighbourhood are Energy Star qualified (which gives the owners an opportunity to save up to 30% on their energy bills and contribute to the well-being of the environment).
You would be amazed by how much of Findlay Creek consists of green space. The extra green space & parks give you a feeling of separation from the big city rush and hustle, they give you an opportunity to enjoy the nature all around you whether you are going for a bike ride, roller blading, jogging or just enjoying a walk though the neighbourhood.
